Any sane person must occasionally pause in the morning before checking out the news. Minutes after waking up yesterday I learned three things:
- The Satanic Temple’s (TST) headquarters in Salem, Ma was threatened with arson via Twitter;
- When co-founder of TST Lucien Greaves tweeted out to what amounts to Hey, Twitter, isn’t inciting violence against your rules? his account got suspended;
- The national headquarters of TST in Salem was attacked.
Flash forward to today, I turned on my iPad with some trepidation. What new lunacy would greet me?
Thankfully it was good news.
Lucien Greaves posted this on his Facebook page this morning:
He went on to say in the comments this was the only communication he got from Twitter.
It’s a win against Twitter stupidity but you don’t have to be a prophet to see that it won’t be the last time TST will have to deal with such bigotry.
